Thread: Installing Nvidia drivers on OpenSUSE 11.2 Milestone5 ??

  1. #1

    Default Installing Nvidia drivers on OpenSUSE 11.2 Milestone5 ??

    Can anyone walk me through the process for getting these drivers installed on OpenSUSE 11.2 Milestone5 from start to finish. I have added the kernel stuff, gcc, and make. I have tried to run the sh Nvidia thing but I get kernel errors and nothing happens.

    I have used information from a previous thread but to no success. If you were able to successfully install these from a fresh install for OpenSUSE w/ Gnome, please walk me through how you did so.

    Thanks

    Install kernel-default/desktop-devel, install make and gcc. If you have those then press Alt+Ctrl+F1, login as user, then su, type /etc/init.x/xdm stop, go to the directory with the drivers and type sh <nvidia-drivers>.run -q, after installing type sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia. After making sure everything is fine type /etc/init.d/xdm start and voila.

    As I stated in my first post, this does not work. I get errors when trying to install the drivers. These errors are:

    "No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site; this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for your kernel."

    <ok>

    "ERROR: The kernel header file '/user/src/linux/include/linux/version.h' does not exit. The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source files in '/usr/src/linux' have not been configured."

    <ok>

    "ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com"

    Please advise.

    Install kernel-headers and make sure you got the latest drivers 185.18.31

    The latest drivers will support my older card?

    You need the 173.xx.xx version of drivers.

    That's the drivers I have been trying to install and have been getting those errors, and still getting those errors. kernel-headers were already installed.
